Dark Shadow Soundtrack..THROW BACK!

If you haven't seen Dark Shadows by Tim Burton, then you're missing out!  The movie alone was great, but the soundtrack was the highlight of the entire movie.  Personally, I loved how it stayed true to the era, but each song was fitting for which ever scene it may have been in.  I'm not sure if I got all the songs, but these are the ones I recognized during the film... I couldn't help myself from singing along....

Track List: 
"Nights in White Satin" Moody Blues
"I'm Sick of You"  Iggy Pop
"Superfly" Curtis Mayfield
"Paranoid" Black Sabbath
"Seasons of the Witch" Donovan  (You would probably recognize his hit "Mellow Yellow)
"Highway Star" (Deep Purple- Roger Glover Remix) 
"Top of the World" The Carpenters
"Bang a Gong (Get It On) T-Rex
"Crocodile Rock" Elton John
"You're the First, the Last, My Everything" Barry White
"No More Mr. Nice Guy" and "Ballad of Dwight Fry" 
Alice Cooper (who was in the film)

"Theme from a Summer Place" Percy Faith, written by Max Steiner

...and if you have no idea who these artists are then you obviously weren't exposed to good music as a child... 

Bravo Danny Elfman, you truly collaborated a collection of songs to make this film complete!
